Abstract (Summary)

From the perspective of a choral conducting graduate student, I have noticed that interest in and knowledge of choral repertoire from the colonial era in Mexico is sparse. A great deal of research has been published by musicologists who specialize or specialized in music from colonial-era Latin America, including Robert Stevenson, Lester Brothers, Craig Russell, John Koegel, Paul Laird, William Summers, Grey Brothers, and Steven Barwick, but this wealth of information is rarely incorporated into academic curriculum.

The purpose of this project report is to briefly investigate cathedral music in Mexico in the seventeenth century in terms of cultural context and performance practice. To manage the scope of this project report, I chose to research one particular composer, Francisco López Capillas (c. 1605-1674), the first Mexican-born chapelmaster at the cathedral of Mexico City from 1654-1674. The project report also includes research, analysis, and writings about the issues of performance practice associated with a certain composition by López Capillas titled, Alleluia. Dic nobis, Maria.
